I'm trying to get better at landscapes in general especially colour work, so to start off I've been doing some quick colour study thumbs at lunch. All taken from photo ref (thanks to Julia Friedl for supplying some of the brilliant shots). I've been told the trick is not to use the colour picker in PS and try and paint the colours using only the human eye...... I know crazy. Damn you technology.
Anyway hopefully these will be the first of many.
There are monkeys in there, they are just very small.
